Commodity Supplemental Food Program

CSFP food packages are distributed monthly to supplement the nutritional needs of low-income pregnant and breast feeding women, new mothers up to one year postpartum, infants, children up to their sixth birthday and those persons at least 60 years of age who meet income eligibility requirements. Food packages have a retail value of about $50.00. Ninety-four per-cent (94%) of the packages distributed went to low income seniors. In addition to distributing food, the CACS program offers food preparation demonstrations, recipe suggestions, and nutritional information to assist program recipients to make healthy dietary choices.
